I hate packing. It’s tough trying to fit everything in my suitcase and I’m always left wondering if I’m forgetting something vitally important.
Now since most airlines have checked baggage fees, that adds a little more challenge to it since I have to try to fit everything I need for a week in one carry-on bag. Talk about a challenge. Add to that the TSA’s rules for carrying on liquids and, well, this should be a game show.
This is just one of the many reasons I love free samples. Not only are they free, but these little bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste are perfect for my carry-on needs. I just open up my bathroom cabinet (where I store all those little freebies) and pick out what I need for the trip.
They take up less space that my full size bottles and tubes and help me to avoid checking baggage. Plus I don’t have to buy trial sized bottles from the store. Sounds good to me.
If you want to be extra thrifty and eco-friendly, save the bottles and reuse them for future trips (this is especially good if you travel more frequently than you receive the samples).
